  •  They want jobs, not hand outs (5+ / 0-)

    I feel badly that so many of them are deep in debt for their college educations, yet they can't earn enough to feed themselves regularly, let alone pay off student loans.

    The young urban community is a resilient bunch.  They share housing in coops, they share food when they can, they help each other out.  Many who work in restaurants try to help out. They're a fairly tightly knit, well organized group. We saw a lot of them during the Occupy protests last year - well educated, bright, hard working kids who have a pretty bleak future ahead of them.

    Many try to get by starting their own businesses, pooling resources and skills, but its a day to day struggle in this economy.  The fact that its been going on for several years now with no end in sight is most distressing.  

    It is an old strategy of tyrants to delude their victims into fighting their battles for them. FDR
